The 'Decisionmaker's Guide to Recycling Plastics' is designed to assist community decisionmakers in determining the feasibility of plastics recycling by resin types. The guide outlines characteristics of successful plastics recycling programs, policy considerations, market considerations, and pros and cons of different types of collection programs. The document also presents information on determining what type of plastic to collect and how to collect it. It includes data and worksheets which enable decisionmakers to estimate amount of material to be recovered as well as startup and operating costs based on the type of recycling program which is implemented. A resource section listing other sources of information on markets, program planning, and new developments in plastics recycling is also contained in the guide.
